Scopes of Practice for Behavioral Health Professionals

Posted by on August 22nd, 2018 Posted in: Mental Health, Minority Health Concerns


Nearly one-fifth of the adult U.S. population is estimated to have a diagnosable mental illness. Mental and emotional well-being is essential to overall health, yet serious challenges exist in providing needed behavioral health care services to the population, and mental health disparities persist among minority and vulnerable populations. The University of Michigan’s Behavioral Health Workforce Research Center aims to strengthen the workforce responsible for prevention and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders by conducting studies to inform workforce development and planning efforts. Use this tool to find state-by-state characteristics and scope of practice of the behavioral health professional workforce.
